'New Moon' trailer highlight of MTV Movie Awards for 'Twilight' fans

June 1, 2009 | 10:42 am

"Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner presented the trailer below for the much-anticipated "Twilight" sequel "New Moon" at last night's MTV Movie Awards. And judging by the reaction, this second installment in the series of films based on the Stephenie Meyer bestsellers will be another smash hit.

Lautner also contended in the breakthrough race against Pattinson. And the song "Decode" by Paramore was bested by "The Climb," written and sung by Miley Cyrus in "Hannah Montana: The Movie."

"Twilight" grossed $351 million worldwide with $149 million more in domestic DVD sales alone. This first film of the franchise is contending at the upcoming Saturn Awards as well. It competes for best fantasy film against "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Hancock," "The Spiderwick Chronicles" and "Wanted."

"New Moon" is scheduled for release on Nov. 20, just one day shy of a year since "Twilight" launched Pattinson and Stewart into the stratopshere. The sequel continues the star-crossed love story of vampire Edward (Pattinson) and the mortal Bella (Stewart). Edward is forced to abandon Bella to save her from his family. And sheepish Jacob (Lautner) transforms from her best friend to a hunky hero in wolf's clothing.
